The images and videos are up, maybe I need some better 3D glasses as I can't see a great deal of 3D effect in some of the images.

"...I can't see a great deal of 3D effect in some of the images."

The stereoscopic angle between the two spacecraft is only just above a "minimally useful" level and will steadily increase with time. "high relief" structures like major coronal features should show the most effect currently. At the end of the primary mission, the angle will be so large normal stereoscopy will be difficult.

For the some 10% of the population who's stereo-bline (like me), it's irrelevant. We cannot fuse stereeo pairs. I'm still enthusiastic about the mission, though!

Would anyone like a X-eyed view of some of the videos? I figured out a way to do it with the quicktime files, still working on the other formats.
